The colours certainly are pretty as this still life is a truly lovely painting!!

This is a super pastel painting Carole. Lovely still life.

Beautifully done Carole , the colours are excellent , almost fluorescent, and the touch of pink , purple on the garlic is beautifully done.

Beautiful pastel painting 🖼

Nice composition Carole and, as usual, very vibrant.

Beautifully done Carole.

As always, the Carole Lelly colours are shining in this lovely painting, so warm and inviting; I especially like the tomatoes and bowl; another lovely painting, my friend; much love and God bless, 🙂🙏❤️xx

Lovely colours in this Carole.

Carole your paintings are always so vibrant! Love your toms and that bowl.

Love the vibrant reds Carole, bet the soup was good too..

Thank you so much David,Denise, Paul, Faye, Marjorie, Chris and Andrew for all your support and kind words. I am very grateful for being there for me and offering such help.

Lovely of you all to offer such encouragement and kind comments David, Fiona, Carole an Russell. Yes Carole, it’s my favourite soup. Very tasty with spices, black pepper and butter beans thrown in for thickening.

I am always amazed by the luminosity of your paintings Carole!

Absolutely super, Carole, so rich...bet the soup was tasty!!

Beautiful, so luminous

Lovely pallet and composition

Dramatic lighting.

Hope the soup tasted as good as this looks!

Lovely glowing light across the whole painting Carole.

Beautifully vibrant Carole - your technique is so good because oil pastels can be quite difficult to use.

If the soup tasted as good as this painting looks then it was definitely a win win.

Fabulous Carole, vibrant and superbly painted!

Preparing to make pepper soup I decided to paint this still life as the colours were so pretty. Used soft pastels and pastel pencils on Clairefontaine pastel mat
